Jesse Koczon became a YouTube star after his parents uploaded a video of him sobbing because he was unsuccessful in running for governor of New Jersey in 2009 but now he is celebrating. In the video Koczon was talking to his mom about his attempt at running for governor and she quickly began filming; Jesse was also quite upset that he was not allowed to vote.
At the time Mrs. Koczon had no idea the video would become so popular but she says she has never regretted uploading it. Jesse immediately became popular and eventually even managed to win $10,000 on a popular TV show for home videos. None of them expected what happened this year though; New Jersey Governor Chris Christie reached out and offered his own kind of support.
In an official act Governor Christie officially made Jesse the state governor for a day, Jesses’s brother was also given the position of lieutenant governor for the same day. The two spent the day doing various things within the state government including even giving an official press conference.
Jesse was able to live out his childhood goal by being granted the position of governor for a day but he has said time and time again that he intends to run for office as soon as possible. Governor Christie reportedly gave him numerous tips and suggestions throughout the day as well; who knows, Jesse may eventually become a well known political figure all thanks to Governor Christie.
